We can work with starters, existing business owner or even bigger international companies. Under “business plan” we also deliver business modeling sessions.
We develop the plans both face to face through coaching, training… or via online course (discover the online course). this flexibility enables us to work with project of really different scale and scope and provide clients with the solution that fits both his needs and budget.
Our business plan services help you to:
- Structure idea
- Develop Strategic Plan
- Raise funds
- Or sometimes just get this “D@#% plan” the bank, immigration department, grant agency, … is asking for.
Overtime, we have modified our business plan offering to touch a wide variety of needs.
Our most popular solution remain our COACHING in 10 sessions (3 to 4 hours each) during which we help you to develop your really own plan.
Most of the solutions in the market provide you with either a “Do It Yourself” template/software or consultants that will write the plan for you. But let’s face it DIY leave you on your own doing something you are not familiar with (this results in many mistakes and corny plans). On the other hand, if you ask consultants to write your plan it becomes “their plan” not yours. And you end up with a nice document that you don’t understand.
We prefer to deliver a mix of one on one “Training, coaching and consulting” to give most of the value to the client. We develop the plan with you. You learn along the way, we truly understand your idea, we assist you in the writing and we make sure you understand fully your plan. This method give you full ownership and helps you to talk about your business, find partners, manage operations and convince Investors.
This business plan coaching is a real investment into your business success.

- – Apply for a grant
- – Apply for a bank Loan

4.Advanced Writing (for big fund raising):
Due to our expertise we are sometimes call to develop more complex and lengthy business plans for big fundraising 10 million USD +. We are engaged with pre-IPO companies in China (Construction, asset management, manufacturing, hospitality) and massive projects in Brazil (Plantation, oil, pharmaceutical).
This type of business plan requires much more time and effort as well as research. We do not only provide writing but we carry out a thorough analysis (internal and external). We help you to restructure the business strategy, operation, performance management in order to make its growth path coherent and sensing for the potential investors.
And we totally write the entire plan from A to Z.
Due to their complexity, these plans takes around 3 months to develop.
Sometimes we are also involved with fundraising (but this is a separate deal)
We price HKD150,000 for this service if done within 3months (we charge an extra HKD10,000/month if you require more time and HKD8,000/day for site visit).
